A Big Post.

Had a very busy three days – Thursday the AirConditioner packed up and we called the technicians. They came out and very kindly told us that the compressor had burned out and  when they make their report to their office, they will send us a quote for repair and replacement although he did indicate that […]

The rain it falleth on the Just.

Scruffy was the first ever Australian dog. She was a stray that someone found and my sister suggested that I might take her. I was a bit reluctant at first but she sort of grew on us and we had her for over 12 years. She left a very big hole when she died. We […]

Wednesday – again!

It rained all day yesterday and most of last night. It is dry (but cold) today but everything is still soggy from last night and early this morning. I have finished most of the work – still a few things to do and I would like to get them done so I can start on […]
